Bigger in Texas

Monday, July 12, 2010


Texas was incredible! As they say everything is bigger in Texas, and let me assure you everyone including the visitors who leave Texas. I had never eaten out so much. We went out to eat
for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Good thing I was visiting friends so we could always split meals. There are some super unique shops and restaurants in Houston. If your planning a trip anytime soon I insist you check out these favorites.

The Bead SHOP
2476 Times Rd., Houston, TX, 77005
in Rice Village

This place was amazing. Thousands of beads spread out all over the tables. And for pretty cheap, only a couple of cents for some really nice glass beads. The guy that worked there had a pretty extensive collection of Hindu sculptures. I bought a few evil eye glass beads... I'm still thinking what to make.

Ruggles Cafe Bakery


Im pretty sure these were meant for children, but we bought some regardless. If you buy a cookie for $1.00 they give you your very own icing to ice your treat. I went all out of course, plus they were delicious.

Ruggles GREEN
The Path of Tea

Ruggles Green offers delicious menu items that incorporate organic, all-natural, hormone-free, preservative-free, products that are always delicious. I ordered the veggie burger with sweet potato fries. Then walk right across the street to the tea bar and order a frozen green tea. It is like heaven in a cup.

United Way Thrift & Flash Back Antiques

The United way thrift store had SO many vintage nurse dresses donated this past weekend. All of my friends tried on a nurse outfit just for fun. I wish nurses still wore these vintage white dress much fun! Close but is Flask Back antiques. I could not afford anything in the store, but it is totally worth the trip.

OH and I have some SUPER exciting news to share... It's not set in stone yest so I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I will tell very soon.
